The Mighty Dragon podcast with Maria Tran #lastkingofthecross

From Australia to Las Vegas

I’m so delighted to have Maria Tran back on The Mighty Dragon. Now based in Vegas, Maria has been super busy (and that’s an understatement) with multiple projects.

One being working alongisde Tim Roth in Last King of the Cross, a big budget Australian series based on the book by John Ibrahim. She talks to me about her character, Madame Tien, and the inspiration she got creating this formidable character.

Maria talks too about her feature film Echo8, her plans for a trilogy and forging the path for women filmmakers to break through and shine. In their own right.

It’s always so refreshing speaking to Maria, her positivity is infectious and she really deserves all the success!
